MassBike’s Bike Night

I have it on good account that MassBike is going to have a big ass Bike Night this year.

Monday, March 31, 2008
6-9pm
Ryles Jazz Club
212 Hampshire Street, Inman Square, Cambridge
ADVANCE TICKETS RECOMMENDED: Tickets may not be available at the door!
$30 members/$45 non-members

I am not going to lie, its kind of pricey to get in the door but the silent auction this year promises to kick some serious ass. They have over 6000 dollars in schwag right now, with more rolling in every day. Everything from a $900 Pedros tool kit, to a bunch of messenger bags, gift certificates, posters, stickers, serious bike security chains (these things are very heavy duty), wool jerseys, normal jerseys, hubs, bike parts, coffee, beer, chocolate, yoga stuff, restaurant gift certificates, etc. It is a freaking mountain of stuff, and the stuff at the silent auction rarely goes for more than 50% retail cost, so its a great place to find a good deal and support MassBike, plus your $30/$45 gets you dinner.

Their will be valet bike parking, and a cash bar.

It might not be for everyone, but the schwag mountain this year seems really aimed at a younger crowd, and they seem to be f packaging everything into “gift mounds” so you can pick and choose between various awesome prize packs.

more info here, (including a ever growing list of donations for the auction)

    • PARKWAYS MOVING FORWARD: DCR is Not The Highway Department January 21, 2015
      It’s a pleasure to be able to praise a government agency: civil servants who try to live up to their public service mission are over-worked and underpaid relative to private sector peers – and always under appreciated! It’s particularly a pleasure to praise the Department of Conservation and Recreation’s (DCR), a woefully underfunded agency whose […]
